Acclaimed dramatic soprano Christine Goerke joins Music Director Andris Nelsons in a rarely heard early work by the French innovator Héctor Berlioz. Berlioz’s passionate “lyric scene” La Mort de Cléopâtre is a monodrama in which the Egyptian queen meditates on the triumphs and tragedies of her life at the moment of her death.

Another orchestral innovator, Gustav Mahler composed his towering Fifth Symphony in 1901-02 following an intensive study of J.S. Bach’s counterpoint, resulting in a new and highly individual approach to the orchestra. The fourth movement is the famous and moving Adagietto for strings and harp.

Ticket includes admission to 6 p.m. Prelude Concert, tonight with the TMC Fellows.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
